That's completely correct. :D It takes time for the Earth to absorb incoming solar insolation and emit it as longwave radiation into the atmosphere.
ornithology, forestry, entomology, triple E, green generation, water quality, dynamic planet (lakes & rivers), awesome aquifers, meteorology, robot arm, write it do it. :)

Hey, a scholarship is a scholarship. Having one is better than not having one. Most of the time.

No official coach, but my dad is a meteorologist so I guess that could count.
